TitleWiNG Client Bridge will not stay online
Question
WiNG AP7602 bridge will not stay online
Environment
Client Bridge capable APs
  • AP65xx
  • AP75xx (AP7502 not supported)
  • AP76xx
Answer
By default each WiNG 5 device is assigned the default Firewall Policy which is automatically mapped to default and user defined Profiles.
As the AP65xx/AP75xx/AP76xx will be deployed as a client bridge and not an infrastructure Access Point, all firewall services will be disabled.
Stateful packet inspection and policy enforcement will be primarily provided by the Wireless LAN infrastructure and not the AP65xx/AP75xx/AP76xx client bridges.

How to disable firewall - Copy and  paste the following into the CLI AP.
!
en
config t
firewall-policy default
no ip dos
no ip-mac conflict
no ip-mac routing conflict
no stateful-packet-inspection-l2
no firewall enable
com wr
end
!
